Our Story

Since 1951, The Community Fund of Darien has granted over $27,000,000 to local nonprofits assisting our neighbors in Darien, Norwalk, and Stamford. 

Join us in our mission to ensure our neighbors have access to food, shelter, physical and

mental healthcare, job training, and youth success programs.

This year, due to the generosity of our neighbors, we were able to award $650,000 to 35 of the area's most impactful nonprofit organizations.
